Gerry Brown Honored as Ducks Unlimited Canada's Manitoba Volunteer of the Year

Every Moment Matters: Shaping the Future Through Volunteering 

WINNIPEG, MB, April 16, 2024 /CNW/ – In recognition of his unparalleled commitment to conservation and volunteerism, Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is proud to announce Gerry Brown as the Manitoba Volunteer of the Year. With over 25 years of dedicated service, Brown’s contributions have left an indelible mark on Manitoba’s wetlands and the DUC community.

We all know that we can’t be everywhere at once, but ask around Manitoba and it certainly seems as if Gerry Brown has found a way to do it. Throughout the province, he’s well known as the guy who will show up, help set up and run all kinds of events, assisting at least eight DUC chapters in any given year.

Gerry embodies the spirit of volunteerism that drives DUC’s conservation efforts forward. His willingness to lend a hand wherever it’s needed exemplifies what it means to be a part of the DUC family of volunteers.

Brown’s journey with DUC began in his hometown of Rennie, where his childhood exposure to conservation efforts at the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary ignited a lifelong passion for protecting natural wetlands. A commercial helicopter pilot by profession, Brown witnessed firsthand the impact of human activity on Manitoba’s landscapes, compelling him to take action.

Throughout his volunteer career, Brown has been instrumental in organizing and supporting numerous DUC events, from the annual Ride to the Lake to serving as Chair of the Manitoba Provincial Volunteer Council. His efforts have not only raised significant funds for wetland conservation but have also inspired community members to join the cause.

In celebration of National Volunteer Week and the theme “Every Moment Matters,” DUC encourages Canadians to consider the impact of volunteering. “Gerry’s story is a powerful reminder of the difference one person can make,” added Tim Binch, DUC’s National Manager of Volunteer Fundraising. “We invite others to follow in his footsteps and join us in our mission to conserve wetlands.”
